Local clusters for Amazon EKS on AWS Outposts - Amazon EKS

Local clusters for Amazon EKS on AWS Outposts

Local clusters enable you to run your entire Amazon EKS cluster locally on AWS Outposts. This helps you mitigate the risk of application downtime that can result from temporary network disconnects to the cloud, such as downtime caused by fiber cuts or weather events. Because the entire Kubernetes cluster runs locally on Outposts, applications remain available. You can perform cluster operations during network disconnects to the cloud. For more information, see Preparing for network disconnects. The following diagram shows a local cluster deployment.
